Fenix UC50

Fenix UC50 Flashlight Review

We came across Fenix when we saw their ad in a magazine. The light that they were promoting looked promising. When I took a closer look at their website, I realized that the lights they are producing are not the ones you’re going to find at your local Wal-Mart. They are producing lights with the […]

Safety Third - Pick a Fastener!

Safety Third: Hardware Store Robots

Today is a sad day. I have finally given up on flying out to California to go take a look at the new Lowe’s robots and feature them on Safety Third. No amount of pleading and following Clint around on my knees could convince him that I should fly out just to take a selfie […]

Safety Third: Steel Toe Flip Flops

I get safety, I really do. I remember at a previous job of mine coming across a man known as Steve Chopatoe. How did he get it? He was out mowing around the facility and well, chopped his toe. Had he been wearing steel toe boots or shoes, he might still have that big toe. […]

This Christmas, what I really regret is not buying my wife this $130,000 world’s most expensive toilet for her enjoyment. I mean, if you’re really going to demonstrate the maximum effect of a bling-centric life, how could you possibly pass up the opportunity to sit upon a crystal-studded throne from Lixil to do your business? How can you […]

Makita Likes Boobies – Pink Drill for Breast Cancer Awareness

Makita likes boobies. I can’t blame them, but the company recently let out a new pink drill for breast cancer awareness in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. The drill, which is basically a pink version of their popular 12V Li-ion FD02W Drill/Driver, comes as you’d expect with a 1.3Ah Li-ion battery, 30 minute fast charger, […]

Bosch Tools Table Saw Lawsuit

Anyone who has used a table saw for any period of time is aware, to some extent at least, of the SawStop table saw and the various legal and patent issues surrounding the existence of a fairly new safety mechanism that promises (and in a large way follows through on) a system to provide unheard of safety with respect to the use of an electric saw. This week, a man who was cut by a miter saw says Robert Bosch Tool Corp. “colluded with its competitors” and lobbied the Consumer Protection Safety Commission to keep “flesh detection and braking technology” from being required on table saws.
